Another Conversion Documentary


“Leap of Faith” is another documentary focusing on conversion to Judaism. The trailer places a particular emphasis on the responses of Christian family members. This is not especially extraordinary considering that one of the top questions people ask converts is: “How did your family feel about it?”

I think this film will go far towards highlighting the plight of converts, who are often not fully accepted by the community they’ve left or the community they’ve joined. If anything, it will certainly start to change the commonly held view that people only convert for marriage.
